Everyone is sluggish in the morning as a result of too much beer and whiskey the night before. They head back to the air/rafts for the final leg of the journey, driving through the darkness this time. They arrive back at the ranch early in the afternoon.
Shania and Hyrm are delighted to see everyone again and celebrate with plenty of Shania’s home cooking. The Professor seems very happy to be out here away from the city. He’s very excited to be going into the swamp the next day, but has to wait for it to get light again. He and Hyrm chat away well into the evening.
